2002 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
93 points
My favorite of a very strong 2002 horizontal. Gorgeously seductive nose of black cherry, Indian spice, musky and smoked meat. Rich and dense with 1er concentration. Round, persistent and lifted. No hard edges or rugged feel at all as the structure is suave and integrated. Excellent.

02 Horizontal. Just behind the Cailles and strikingly similar. Very similar aromatics to the Cailles if a touch less spicy. The palate is also similar but perhaps more bright and floral. Similarly rich, dense and silky. Ethereal.

Good but not as excellent as the Caiiles and Chaignots in the 2002 horizontal. Similarly aromatic with plenty of spice, smoke and potpourri in the nose. The palate is a bit more rich and ripe while less complex. Perhaps this will evolve and get to a point where it sings like the Cailles and Chaignots, but I'd think this will always trail those two wines.

Sadly and brutally corked.

07 Horizontal. A more simple NSG 1er with red berries, smoke and herb in the aromas. Palate is plump and non-delineated. Reasonably balanced but four-square.

07 Horizontal. Best in the flight by a margin. Aromas of bright red berry, spice and toasted herb. Delicious on the palate with pure red cherry made complex by musk and spice. Youthful with upside.

Least favorite of the 07 horizontal. Simple nose of black and red cherry, with little nuance. Palate is sowing ripe, non-delineated and bit clumsy. Maybe it just needs time.

07 Horizontal. Very good, but behind the Chaignots in the horizontal. Forward and approachable aromas with nice spice and musk depth. Delicious and pure on the palate. Good density and complexity. Well balanced and rounded fruit.

Side-by-side with the 14, and this is the better wine for drinking right now. Forward, intense nose of black cherry, with Indian spices and exotic stem notes. Primary and round on the palate but delicious already with good depth of flavor. Round, rich and smooth.

Side-by-side with the '13. While the '13 was better for current drinking, this should prove to be the superior wine. Aromas are super rich and primary at this stage -- almost like a barrel sample. Palate is similarly dense with terrific concentration. Needs time. Clear upside from here.

2010 Vaucrains/Cailles Pair. Oh my these 2010s are just rocking. The nose here has so much power and intensity. Sultry, spice-filled and musk-filled black cherry fruit. Rich on the palate but so balanced. Grand Cru levels of concentration. Despite the size, the fruit here is bright and restrained. Persistent. Upside from here.

My least favorite Chevillon in the whole line up. This wine is a miss. The aromas are over-ripe and muddled. Palate is rich and forward, but with no nuance and lacking balance. Bottle seemed sound. Just not a great wine.

Much better than a weird 06 Roncieres served side-by-side. Aromas of fat and rich black cherry fruit with plenty of spice, potpourri musk and toasted herbs to add interest. The palate is rich and chewy. Cleary young with plenty of fruit and stuffing. In proportion and good now, but better with time.

Nose of rich, honeyed apple with light caramel notes. The palate is pure and delicious. Moderate concentration. Intense botrytis. Tasty with moderate complexity.

flawed
Corked - too bad as the underlying raw material was powerful and intriguing.

A wine for the ages. Explosive nose of aged plum and black cherry, with dried tobacco, cedar, and bell pepper. What a perfume. The palate is still so fresh with rich, round fruit and still present tannin. Wow.
